It's a Bloggers Do it Better in Oxblood Kind of Day

One of my least favorite things about this season's deep red is the name: oxblood. I understand the need to separate it from maroon, burgundy, and bordeaux, but oxblood? Really? It just doesn't sound pretty to me.

Luckily, there are things I love about the color. I love that it goes well with browns, black, greys, nudes - basically any neutral. And even more, I love that it goes with colors like bright red. There is something about pairing different reds together that usually screams Valentine's Day...but with oxblood I don't get that vibe at all. 

I'm really excited to see all the other outfits over at Pretty Shiny Sparkly for Bloggers Do It Better - oxblood is everywhere this season, and I know I'll get some great inspiration!
